Abstract

Five standard tests are compared: chi-squared, Fisher's exact, Yates’ correction, Fisher’s exact mid-p, and Barnard’s. Yates’ is always inferior to Fisher’s exact. Fisher’s exact is so conservative that one should look for alternatives. For certain sample sizes, Fisher’s mid-p or Barnard’s test maintain the nominal alpha and have superior power.
